Renowned Dermatologist Dr. Anthony Benedetto, Drexel Hill Practice Will Join Dermatology Partners

First PA Physician to Practice Mohs Surgery to Become Part of Expanding Dermatology Network

Renowned dermatologist Dr. Anthony V. Benedetto – the first physician in Pennsylvania to practice microscopically controlled Mohs surgery to treat both common and rare types of skin cancer – will join Dermatology Partners, the Mid-Atlantic’s premiere privately owned, physician-led dermatology group specializing in medical and surgical dermatology in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.

The Dermatologic SurgiCenter in Drexel Hill, PA, opened by Dr. Benedetto in 1992, will become part of Dermatology Partners’ growing practice, which now includes more than 30 clinics offering a full spectrum of services for the detection and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair, and nails, and specializing in advanced treatments for skin cancer such as Mohs surgery and Dermoscopy.

“The decision to join Dermatology Partners was made after considerable deliberation of various professional options over the past few years,” says Dr. Benedetto. “I believe their business model and approach to managing dermatologic practices is equivalent and compatible with the way I have always practiced dermatology.  I expect their modern resources and collective expertise will help me continue the personalized and compassionate care I have always provided my patients.”

“We are incredibly honored to welcome Dr. Benedetto and his entire team at the Dermatologic SurgiCenter to Dermatology Partners,” notes Andrew Frankel, Chief Operating Officer at Dermatology Partners. “Dr. Benedetto’s pioneering work, stellar reputation, and extensive experience speak for themselves and represent a tremendous addition to our already exceptional team throughout the Mid-Atlantic.”

In addition to his ongoing practice, Dr. Benedetto serves as the Director for the ACGME-accredited Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology fellowship program and ASDS-accredited Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery fellowship program at the Dermatologic SurgiCenter, both of which will continue as part of Dermatology Partners.

A frequent lecturer and the author or co-author of over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and chapters in textbooks, he is also the editor of a well-regarded two-volume textbook on botulinum toxins. Dr. Benedetto is a Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. He was named “Dermatologist of the Year” in 2009 by the Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.

The addition of Dr. Benedetto and his Dermatologic SurgiCenter in Drexel Hill represents a continuation of Dermatology Partners’ ongoing commitment to providing an enhanced patient experience, a best-in-class management team, and access to immediate care, expanded healthcare offerings, and the most advanced technologies in the dermatology field.

Under the Dermatology Partners’ banner, Dr. Benedetto’s Dermatologic SurgiCenter at 2221 Garrett Road in Drexel Hill will become ‘Dermatology Partners – Drexel Hill’ and continue to serve both new and current patients. Dr. Benedetto closed his Center City Philadelphia practice after 40 years in April 2024. Patients who visited Dr. Benedetto in Philadelphia can continue their care with him at the Drexel Hill location. Alternatively, they can visit to find a more convenient Dermatology Partners location, with the same exceptional level of quality care.
